Just picked this up, I thought itd be another one of those shitty "draw a dog with just 5 lines!" books but its actually gold and teaches a good ammount of fundamentals very well
>ITT: Gems you wish you knew earlier
This is the best perspective book I have ever read, unfortunately I only came across it when I already understood everything in it. Another great one is foundations in comic book art which is the best book on fundamentals Ive seen yet. If you could combine these with something on colour and something on anatomy on would have a hell of a curriculum.
That's the worst loomis book.
Anyways Michael Hampton is definitely the best at teaching construction
She is pretty good and is streaming now!

why don't be have a sticky thread with job /commissions listed?? wouldn't that help the /ic/ community ? even if people dont want to admit it /ic/ is a community its the first tab i open when i turn my pc on.
Getting my first tattoo. Looking for some inspiration!
i take a ride in the "self-promotion" thread and just "stalk" all the "artists" in the replies but i just found this in one.
The portrait pic is obviouslly a more detailed work, not perfect but is more complex and the artist dont get any like/reblog.
then the second thing, is like he just put the wacom pencil in his ass and start scratching in the tablet and he got 11 "notes (not a big number, i know)
why this happen? is this easy "sucess" as artist? just drawing shitty porn for normie people?
Have you ever regarded someone in the same way a man might find a painting of a woman beautiful but not erotic?
A purely kind of aesthetic appreciation.
What is the trick to copying Bargue plates?
Does Anyone know of a good guide or tutorial?
He tells you exactly how to do it over about 5 pages before all the plates. Do you have the pdf or just jpg of the plates? Also helps a lot to print it out and have it next to your drawing rather than looking at it on a screen
Is drawing a portrait of the girl you love creepy?
I don't personally know anyone that is into drawing and I don't have many friends in general so I was thinking of joining my campus' art club.
Is this a bad idea? Have you joined a similar club?
Has anyone here worked or personally known someone who has worked at an art supplies store? Is it reallt as shitty as I hear it is? Did they to to art school before working there?
can't imagine it's any worse than regular retail
>why don't you carry xxx? can't do my shit project without xxx. let me talk to a manager reeeeee
>can i use a coupon on these
>can i use ebt on these
>people who bring a bunch of shit up to the pos and decide not to get anything
retail a shit
If I'm a NEET how many hours a day should I study arting?
How do I get rid of my ego?
Many times when I'm painting I think about the likes I'm going to get on Facebook when I post the drawing. I hate this feel.
its normal to like being liked (in a non-facebook way) in fact it can be great motivation to improve.
there's no need to kill off your ego unless you're a giant douchebag. being proud of yourself is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of.
Finding satisfaction in getting lots of likes isn't the problem - the problem is when you get lots of likes and assume it's because you're hot shit, then going and telling everyone what hot shit you are. "Why should I listen to you when I get more likes than you lol" shit like that. That's when your ego gets in the way and makes you an intolerable shit to everyone around you.
>Finding satisfaction in getting lots of likes isn't the problem
That is the problem, Anon. As a matter of fact it is the root cause of the problem, when you draw you draw for yourself not how many upboats you'll get.
What would /ic/ do if they won the Powerball lottery? It's up to 1.5 Billion dollars right now.
Would you still try and git gud? Would you still try and make it professionally? Would you use your new fortune to finance your dream art project?
To add a more definitive spin to your question:
At the new year party at our local crafts/arts workshop everyone was, in fact, given a state loto ticket (just fot shit and giggles, largely, but, hey — you never know).
If I would have won I would probably spend a large chunk of it to get large-scale glassworking equipment installed, glassblowing lathe, etc.
How true is this?
I made that picture a while ago, I'm surprised someone saved it. I believe there is some truth to it. Did you save it from here or from elsewhere? I'd like to know how far it may have spread if at all.
